Splurge or Save

Hello Lovelies! Recently I discovered a very important fact. There is no denying the truth when it can come and bite you in the butt, or in my case my wallet--if I'm not careful. Yes ladies and gents I have discovered that I am no doubt head over heels, gaga-fied, in love with........shoes........the horror.....THE HORROR!!! I am an addict for shoes. High heels, flats, boots, you name it. I have fallen victim to the dreaded shoe lover curse. I enjoy looking at them, talking to them, petting them, taking them for long strolls in the park--(insert scene from "Lord of The Rings") Myyyy Preeccciiooouuss--Okay that was a creepy moment. Sorry about that, but seriously I really love shoes. 

Besides the black booties and cognac boots from my last post, my latest drool has to be for the Valentino studded pump. The rocker chic detailing on the 'Rockstud' and 'T-Strap' pump immediately caught my attention. Strategically placed golden pyramid studs line the straps of the patent leather pointed toe shoe giving it a ladylike silhouette with a touch of edge. It's a look that is great for dressing up a pair of jeans or that LBD you have sitting your closet. This shoe with all its glory is perfect for pairing with just about anything you can think of. The style is right up my alley--unfortunately, it's not within my budget. So when I came across similar pumps at Shoedazzle I was stoked! I didn't have to eat ramen noodles for 6 months as I originally planned to do. Instead I could save and get the studded look that I crave.

There are noticeable differences between the pumps. Obviously the price is a huge difference with the Valentino pumps costing $895 as oppose to Shoedazzle's version at $39.95. Though the closure of the heels, finish of the shoe, and studded straps are different,  the overall feel I think is present between them both. As much as I would love to purchase the Valentino pumps, realistically I can't right now. A girl can't survive off only noodles and water alone. Well maybe I could......as long as I have a great pair of shoes on.
